Anisha Daxini, MD
Anisha was born and raised in India and attended medical school at J.J.M. Medical College, India. After medical school, she worked as a regional tuberculosis officer in a Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program serving primarily the rural and medically underserved population with the vision of achieving “TB free India.” While there, she played a key role in designing and developing a project to create awareness and prevention strategies for TB/HIV/AIDS patients and fostered her interest in internal medicine, patient care, global health and leadership.
She immigrated to the U.S. in 2017 and has grown to love her adopted city, Philadelphia. She describes her time at Nazareth as enjoyable and enriching. The high incidence of preventable chronic illnesses in her patients led to the discovery of her new love, “Lifestyle Medicine.” She feels honored to be chosen as the PiT “Global Alliance Liaison” in American College of Lifestyle Medicine (2018-2019) to represent the U.S. and is currently working on developing the “Positive psychology Module for Lifestyle Medicine residency curriculum.”
Outside of work, she likes to hike, do yoga, run on the Schuylkill banks and listen to music. She recently checked off skydiving from her bucket list and is learning the Ukulele.
